Burro bananas are available year round.
The banana plant is often erroneously referred to as a tree, rather it is a the world's largest herb bearing edible fruit. The herb successively produces fruit indefinitely without discrimination to seasons.
This fruit is occasionally sold under the name chunky banana as it is stubbier and fatter than the common banana. Its peel is a rich vivid dark green that turns deep yellow with characteristic black spots when ripe. The creamy yellow flesh is soft on the outside with a slightly crisp textured center. Its flavor ranges from mildly sweet to creamy sweet with lemon undertones.
Burro bananas are high in potassium and also contain a significant amount of vitamin B, vitamin C, fiber and magnesium.
A dual-purpose variety, enjoy fresh when fully ripe or use green like a plantain. Add ripe banana slices to fruit salad or try skewered with other tropical fruits for a sweet kebab. Add to breads, muffins and cooked cereal preparations. Saute with brow sugar and serve atop ice cream or alongside chocolate cake. Use green Burro bananas in savory preparations such as curries and Mexican stir fries. To delay ripening, refrigerate. To hasten ripening, place in a paper bag and keep at room temperature.
With cultivated origins in Mexico, the Burro banana is especially popular in the Philippines. As banana plants are extremely vulnerable to windy conditions, the Burro banana is considered a superior variety as it is vigorous and produces hardy wind-resistant foliage. Growing ten to twelve feet tall, Burro bananas are also known as Orinoco, bluggoe, horse, hog and largo.
